Publicist says Zsa Zsa Gabor back in hospital

LOS ANGELES — Zsa Zsa Gabor was returned to a hospital Tuesday, just a week after going home following the amputation of her right leg.

Gabor, who turns 94 on Feb.6, started spitting up blood and mucus, publicist John Blanchette said.

Doctors told Gabor’s husband, Frederic Prinz von Anhalt, that she was bleeding internally and he should call an ambulance, Blanchette said.

Gabor was released from Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center on Jan. 22, a week after doctors amputated most of her right leg.

After the amputation, Dr. David Rigberg, associate professor of vascular surgery at the hospital, said there were no complications but her health was frail so she was being monitored closely.

Deputy City Attorney Melanie Skehar said Pressly was charged Tuesday morning with driving under the influence and having a blood alcohol content of .20 or higher.
